Catholic Word of the Week

Exegesis: The art and science of investigating and expressing the true sense of Sacred Scripture. In other words, to draw out and express the meaning of Sacred Scripture. The person involved in the work of exegesis is the exegete.
 Bonus Word: Eisegesis: Essentially, reading your own meaning into the text. Looking for justification in Scripture for a meaning already determined consciously or subconsciously.
